Looking Ahead: Indies on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

In recent years the indie scene has certainly been surging in popularity with titles like Braid, Fez, and numerous others becoming top selling titles. This trend will only continue into the next generation, and this was very apparent when we saw Indie titles being announced by Sony and Microsoft alongside franchises such as Battlefield and Call of Duty. The main thing still to be figured out is which platform will see stronger Indie support. After the initial reveals and E3 we have a general idea, but is it what everyone is thinking?

The Wii U and PS4 will eat up all the indie support unless MS change their attitude and restrictions.

MS are allowing devs to self publish through the windows store on the new dash...

HammadTheBeast2119d ago

Source? And they've allowed publishing through themselves in the past, they just take a massive cut oout of it, and even take cuts from other platforms where its not published by them.

I still do not understand what's so interesting about Octodad. I'm more interested if they put DayZ on the PS4 than anything... and also that spaceship game. Forgot what it's called. Hopefully they also bring X:Rebirth and Natural Selection 2 on PS4.

PS4 is the way to go for Indies IMO unless M$ keeps changing towards better then both would be good but only time will tell.

Keep the indie support coming Sony!

Well the Indie scene on the 360 hasn't been as prominent as it once was, while Indie games on PSN have been getting more and more exposure. With PS4, you can't quiet Indie developers if you tried, while I personally haven't heard any of them say anything about the Xbox. That's very telling in itself.

You shouldn't get disagrees for that, it's the truth. Indies are praising the PS4 at the moment and I'm looking forward to the games they'll make for it. Next-gen we will see a lot more small, downloadable titles thanks to the self publishing.
